Gillum's Sports Lounge
Before opening in May 2008, Jeff Gillum previously owned and operated 7 bars and entertainment establishments spanning nearly two decades.
As a former EKU football player and graduate, Jeff saw a need for a full-service restaurant and bar in Richmond that offered a fun / family dining experience in addition to the up-scale bar/lounge atmosphere.
